ATI may rename the R580 the X1900

AS 2005 draws to a close, attention turns to 2006, which in IT way is going to start sooner than more people expect. Viva Las Vegas in first week of January will bring us Intel's Core (ex-Yonah) and the Viiv platform. However, what's interesting is that the 3D wars will continue as well.

ATI's recently shipped reference boards with R580 chip to its partners and is organising road-tours showing of the new product as we write these lines. The PCB looks almost identically to "old" R520 boards, with same cooling solutions and so on. Since the R580 chip is pin-compatible with R520, there was very small number of modifications ATi needed to do. As far as the product line-up goes, you can expect X1900XL, X1900XT and All-in-Wonder X1900XL boards.
